Glitter Stencilling with Lace and a New Mini Catalogue!


It may be April Fool’s Day but the new Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue from Stampin’ Up! is no joke! (corny eh?).  Seriously though this Mini is a little ripper, jam packed with new exciting products like the Eat Chocolate Stampset and the Big Shot Adhesive Sheets – both featured here today:

and a very cute stamp set:

Oh and did I mention the co-ordinating punch?

The project I have to show you today certainly has WOW factor:

My background pattern has been created using the Bigshot adhesive sheets and a Glitter Stencilling technique that my stamping friend Vanessa demonstrated at stamp club last month! Glitter stencilling you might ask – How does that work? Here’s how:

Step 1

Cut your adhesive sheet to size and carefully peel off the printed side.  It’s important not to handle the adhesive as it may lead to missing spots on your stencilled background. Apply to a base card – in this case I’ve chosen Baja Breeze:

Step 2

remove the other coversheet, exposing the adhesive:

Step 3

Place an open design piece of lace fabric over your adhesive and press firmly down:

Step 4

Choose your first glitter colour (in this case chocolate) and pour liberally over the cardstock, making sure you cover all the adhesive – TIP this is when your powder pal trays will come in very handy! Make sure once you have covered your cardstock, you shake and tap off all excess glitter, undo the stopper on the end of your tray and tip the unused glitter back into the container – brilliant!

Step 5

Remove the lace “stencil” from your cardstock – you will see the adhesive exposed from underneath the stencil (don’t throw the lace away – you can use it over and over again!):

Step 6

Now the fun part – add you second glitter colour (here I’ve used light blue to match my Baja Breeze Cardstock) this layer of glitter will only stick to the adhesive still exposed – and I’ve done this on my larger powder pals tray:

Finished Product:

And a closer look at the effect:

And aren’t the Eat Chocolate stamped images so much fun? Here is a similar card I created using a different style of lace:

I just love this colour combo of Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla! I kept with this same combo to create another card featuring the Eat Chocolate Set and the matching decorative punch – so simple but so effective!
